Before I had my first baby, I prepared myself not to sleep for the first four months. I don't know why, but "four months" was the time frame in my head that made sense.
Four YEARS later, I'm realizing just how naive I was, "Oh silly idealistic first-time mom! How sweet, really."
If you're a parent, you know that you're always waking up. For one reason or another, from the moment your baby is born until they turn eighteen (I've been told).
If they're not hungry, it's their teeth.
If it's not their teeth, they have a cold.
If it's not a cold, it's a bad dream.
If it's not a bad dream, it's the thought of maybe even having a bad dream.
Or they're thirsty. Or hungry.
Or IF they are finally sleeping well - you won't.
You'll have insomnia. You'll need to pee. You'll be up worrying about that thing that was bugging you that you shouldn't be thinking about - but you are.
You'll have a song stuck in your head. On repeat.
To illustrate this experience, I've made this video (below). Enjoy.
Every morning I wake-up with smeared mascara somewhere on my face.
I don't wear much make-up at all, but I do wear mascara almost every day. What I don't do, is wash it off properly before I go to bed (I know: terrible!)
Over the years, I have tried many different kinds of eye-make up remover, and I've always felt frustrated. It's either too oily, or it doesn't actually work and I end up trying to use soap. Then I get soap in my eye, it burns, turns red, I swear and then say "I'm never doing that again!" Until I forget, and do it again.
So after a lot of extensive "field research" I've decided that THIS (below) is my #1 favourite all-natural eye make-up remover. It works like a charm, every time!
